Babes being funny. Dudes being funny. Rad pixors and pleasant riding.

Ask Pinkbike - Shimano XTR Brake Tips, One-By Chainring Choices and the Wrong Slopestyle Bike
@wakaba: no, I don't think the 40lbs Huffy with ridiculous geometry, wheels/frame/everything made of a lead and crappy tires will outclimb even an entry level full suspension bike from a major manufacturer. So I don't know what you're getting at.

I rode that setup for years, never had a problem. Now that I'm on a full suspension thats added 2lbs to my bike weight I struggle to spin some of those climbs, despite smaller wheels. Weird how weight and hardtail vs full suspension will affect the required ratios.

Biggest issue is price and compatibility with existing cassette. My situation is this: I could use a 38t or 40t rear with my 32t front ring. Going to a 30t front make relatively little difference in lowest gear ratio. Going to a 28t would help, but big sacrifice on top end. Not a big deal, because a front ring would only be $40 (or less). Going to a bailout gear would be $80 minimum, and I'd have to grind apart my SLX cassette. Bummer.

31lbs, probably because of tubes, older heavier cranks, and that boat anchor of a Debonair. Switchback will be shipping a carbon 150mm/650b frame soon which will be 2lbs lighter than this frame and only $1800 (I think). If it rides as good as this bike it'll be a winner. The Unveil7 was actually designed by the same guy working on the Cove Hustler 650b, Carver ICB, and Alutech ICB, among other things. These Taiwanese guys know how to network.

All I want to know is: where is the best bar in proximity to the best trailhead in SLC? I'd love to be able to ride from home, to work, to the trailhead, grab a brew, and ride home again.

Religion has a habit of squashing diversity of both culture and mindset. Utah seems to be great place to live if you don't raise eyebrows or crave the brews.
